SWEETPEA - DUSTY ROSE






I was inspired today to use some Aqua papers I was using for another Challenge.  Liking the colours I decided to do several images in the same colour scheme and see how different I could make them.






The first stamp image I used was ©Joanne Schempp's Dusty Rose.     I chose Dusty Rose as I had already stamped it and started colouring the skin tones.  Not being sure whether I was happy with my colouring it had been left unfinished.  So after colouring several images in colours matching my papers and liking the results I decided to continue colouring this one the same!






I hope you like it and feel inspired too!  There are lots of gorgeous stamps to chose from at Sweetpea stamps so why not pop over and take a look.





Techniques:
USED:
Stamps:  Sweetpea - Dusty Rose
Papers  used:  Papermania
Medium:  Copics, Primsa and Polychromo pencils, Black pen, White pen, Sukura glitter pen, PVA glue for faux pearls
Papers:  As above plus Co-ordinations
Dies used:    Marianne flower dies, Spellbinders flower dies, Border die
Embellishments:  Various flowers, pearl, bow, letter stickers, butterfly (cut from Bo Bunny papers) and hat pins
